Yes, there is a bulb in the headlight switch that should illuminate the 3 icons around the switch. On your 98, these should light whenever the head or parking lamps are on and the level can be adjusted by the dimming switch along with the rest of the dash illumination. It is fairly common for that bulb to burn out over time.
